Drop-dead gorgeous model Pattie Boyd, the “Queen of the Sixties,” is the inspiration for the timeless love songs “Something,” “Layla” and “Wonderful Tonight.” Boyd is celebrated for her intimate and revealing photographs of George Harrison and The Beatles and Eric Clapton, among others.
“These people were witnesses to music history, and they possessed the talent to uniquely document the music from the audience, backstage and on the road,” says Peter Blachley, a Morrison Hotel Gallery founder. “Many of these stories will contain surprise, humor and reality. But most of all, authentic and honest recollections of music history backed up by the stunning visuals we all know and many we have never seen.”

This original national tour of its legendary music photographers is a live show presented by the artists themselves as they share their amazing stories and iconic images with audiences nationwide. Behind the Lens with Henry Diltz and Pattie Boyd will also travel to City Winery locations in Nashville () and New York City ( ). The tour kicks off , at Largo in Los Angeles, in association with Monterey International booking agency.
